About Jeff

While a college student, I privately tutored high school and college students in math, chemistry, and physics. I enjoyed tutoring very much and was quite successful in helping clients to improve their grades. Consequently, after obtaining my PhD, I continued to tutor high school students, as time permitted, over the ensuing years. Now that I am retired, I wish to continue tutoring on a more regular basis. I have experience in teaching engineering professionals, as well. I taught successful 3-day workshops to chemical engineers on the application of fundamental chemical engineering theory to improve the operations of their respective chemical plants.

My objective now is to provide middle school math and math SAT tutoring services. I am concerned that American students are not up to par mathematically with their peers in other countries and that progress in engineering and scientific disciplines in the US may be negatively impacted in the future as a result. I am concerned by the unfounded belief of many students that they cannot do math.

I have tutored students who struggle with math and students who want to gain more insight and maximize their knowledge. I understand the challenges and motivation of both and have been successful in helping both. If a student is motivated to learn, I can help them to do so. At this stage of my life, I want to do something that is helpful to others.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I am qualified to tutor middle school math, pre-algebra, algebra 1, and SAT/ACT math preparation. Preparation for the GRE math exam is very similar to preparation for the SAT or ACT math exam.

Chemical Engineering

I have a PhD in chemical engineering.
I worked as process analysis, process simulation and process design engineer for 38 years.
I taught in-house chemical engineering courses to engineers in my company.

Prealgebra

As a PhD chemical engineer I am qualified to tutor prealgebra.
